Recently I've been watching a lot of bad movies, on purpose. Yeah, I kind of have a thing for the oddball, the outrageous, the things that make you go hmm...( for a 90's reference). I like cheesy - you have to admit sometimes, things are so bad they're good. So, what have I been watching? We started out watching the documentary about Troll 2, aptly titled The Best Worst Movie.
We also went to the midnight screening of The Room, at the Piedmont theater - there is nothing like watching a bad b movie in a theater- it's like MST3k (for another 90's reference) times 10. The audience really gets into it.
Then we watched Troll 2 - again. I still can't decide which one is worse -or as I like to put it which one is more hilarity inducing.
Then I started thinking about my/our/ er, fashion's preoccupation with quirky (let's face it oddball, wacked-out trends) . If you haven't read it yet check out The Man Repeller blog. Hilariously true.
I know I've tried my share of oddball looks - so I showed the hubs the blog. His response,"... you must have desensitized me, because I don't think anything she was wearing was that bad."
Huh. Had I desensitized him to man-repelling looks?
Here are some of the Best Worst Fashion looks I've tried throughout my time documenting outfits on the interwebs.
The High Waist - the hubs hates these. HATES. Endearingly referred to as mom jeans - high waisted jeans started making a comeback in 2007 - I have to say I don't think I can ever go back to those super low slung thong exposing jeans of yesteryear.
The Romper - Infantalizing fashion. Why do I love wearing these ode to the diaper days pieces so?
My Harems - Hammer pants had their hey day - wait wait they're back! I was hesitant to try this look but was won over- they are so comfy. Hubs does not agree with me about their awesome factor.
Oxfords - I have several pairs of these shoes in different colors and heel heights- but I tend to wear these a lot. How many times can you spot them on my feet?
Boy Trousers - It's official I'm boy-trouser- crazy. I'm cheating on jeans (my first love) with the boy fit trouser.
And then there is this...
Shoulder pads ( eat your heart out Norma, for an 80's reference) Draped - er, ruched skirt - bow head piece AND hipster 80's booties. Fun.
